Pure and simple Cellulose Insulation Features
Cellulose insulation has a functional lifetime of more than 50 years!
There is no need to replace or maintain the insulation during normal building use. During the installation of loose-fill or blow in insulation, any waste material is added into the building shell where the insulation is installed, so there is effectively no installation waste.
Good for the environment!
Blown in cellulose insulation is produced primarily from post-consumer wood pulp (newspapers), typically accounting for roughly 85 % of the insulation by weight. Cellulose insulation is treated with fire-retardant. Borates and boric acid are used most commonly and account for the other 15 % of the cellulose insulation by weight.
Cold Rooms Over A Garage? Cellulose. Existing Walls With Fiberglass Performing Poorly? Cellulose Can Solve It. New Construction? Cellulose. Existing Attic Needs Upgraded R-Value? Cellulose
Blow in Cellulose Insulation Tops Fiberglass in Standards
Blow in Cellulose Insulation is covered by the American Society for Testing and Materials Standard Specifications (ASTM). The ASTM covers several material properties, including:
- Flame spread
- Smoldering combustion
- Odor emission
- Moisture vapor absorption
- Fungi resistance
- Adhesive/cohesive strength (spray on only)
Loose Fill Premium Class 1 Cellulose Insulation is the best choice for attic floors. It is blown in with high pressure truck mounted machines. THIS is the final step in our attic treatment process. This final step provides the R-Value ( Resistance Value) protection against heat escape from the living space while providing superior heat protection in the hot summer by preventing heat to travel through the insulation to the living space ceilings. This lowers your run time for your electric significantly. Along with proper ventilation, proper pressure ( air barrier), your home is completely protected in all seasons.
- most general contractors advise their clients to make the switch to cellulose dense packed walls
- significant difference is sound absorption / sound control
- improved heat retention
- heat protection from radiation (direct sunlight)
- fire retardant / fire safety
- pest and rodent resistant
- mold mildew and moisture resistance
- dense packed insulation fills gaps and voids otherwise left open with fiberglass batts
- prevents sagging at the top of the stud cavity
all-borate, liquid fire retardant is infused directly into the fibers, resulting in a more effective insulator at the price of competitive blended products
- cellulose is the best method of insulation without removing drywall
